St. Paul, Minn. — The Bloomingdale’s store at the Mall of America will be closing.
A spokeswoman for the company confirmed today the store will close, but did not provide any other information.
She said the closing date and other details will be revealed this afternoon.
Bloomingdale’s was one of the original anchor tenants of the mall when it opened in August of 1992.
Three additional Bloomingdale’s stores will close in early spring 2012: Atlanta, Ga.; Oak Brook, Ill.; and North Bethesda, Md.
Final clearance sales at these locations will begin on Jan. 8, and run for approximately 10 weeks.
